Pitch Your Startup to Investors

Dear Startup,

Here's an opportunity for you to raise your early stage round or get accelerated to be funding ready.

Kickstart is an initiative by Headstart Network Foundation, a volunteer driven non profit that has been building the startup ecosystem of India since 2007.

Know more about Headstart at https://headstart.in

At Kickstart fundable startups get to meet investors and accelerators.

After inviting applications, the startups are shortlisted after careful scrutiny by Headstart.

On the day of the event, the startups battle it out in a fiery pitch session in front of a jury.

The day ends with networking and the announcement of the winners.   

The investors then invite startups they have shortlisted for a one on one meeting at their discretion.

What we are looking for in the Top 10 Startups:

1. Does the startup solve a big problem in a big, fast growing market?

2. How good is the traction?

3. Does your team have the vision and skills to become a market leader?

4. Does the product have a sustainable competitive advantage?

5. How is your idea influencing the society or making an impact in your target segment.

Winners Get:

  • Exclusive one-on-one mentoring with industry leaders.
  • Pitching in front of other Industry Experts, Mentors and Investors.
  • Exclusive Entry to our National Conclave where you get a chance to raise for your startup.
  • Exclusive chance to be a part of our Founders Circle, an upcoming video series that covers your startup story.
